E changed his text to something that devolved his obligations onto his
parties, this being an unregulated action. Presumedly, agreeing to
something is the same as agreeing to its text; therefore, these people
agreeing to ehird's text were agreeing to him, making him a contract
and a partnership. (Also, presumedly, he was not a contract before he
changed his text, which is a reasonable presumption.)

Slightly stronger version, perhaps:

I change myself to "This contract is a pledge. The parties to this
contract SHALL ensure that it fulfills its obligations. Any party to
this contract can leave it by announcement." I agree to myself.

Now if I were to register right now, someone would be ENCOURAGED to
EXILE me, I guess.


Gratuitous Arguments by ais523:

I'm not the caller, but the message archived at

should explain most of what happened (and see the message in which
ehird called the CFJ for the rest).


Judge Quazie's Arguments:

Trivially FALSE because first-class partnership is an undefined statement.

Under another interpretation of the statement - 'I am both a
partnership and a first class player' I still find this CFJ to be
FALSE.  The actual result of what happened was either a) nothing
because players have no text or more likely b) a contract was created
with the text, but the contract was not ehird, though for this CFJ it
does not matter which of those two choices actually occured.
